Steffy: These don't mean anything.
Hope: They're annulment papers, Steffy. Liam is ending your marriage. I'm sorry.
Steffy: (Sighs) Uh, don't be.
Hope: I know this isn't how you wanted things to go.
Steffy: No. Not anywhere near. But it isn't over. Liam and I, we will be together someday. It's only a matter of when.
(Knock on door)
Rick: Your secretary wasn't at her desk.
Liam: Rick, hi.
Liam: No. Uh, no, no. Come in.
Rick: (Clears throat) (Scoffs) Good-lookin' office.
Liam: Yeah. Thank you. Thanks.
Rick: Probably wondering why I'm here.
Liam: Uh, yeah, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's 'cause you want to make sure I do right by your sister.
Rick: You know how it is.
Rick: Things have gone back and forth between you two, and then with Steffy, it's just a... (Inhales sharply) It's been a messy triangle.
Liam: That's one way to put it.
Rick: Uh, now I hear you're gonna end your marriage and get back together with Hope.
Rick: You sure about that? Well, Steffy’s, uh, she's a gorgeous, talented woman. You have an insane connection. (Sighs) I guess what I'm saying, for Hope's sake, I just wan make sure things are really done between you and Steffy.
Taylor: I don't believe it's over for Steffy and Liam.
Brooke: Liam served Steffy annulment papers.
Taylor: I think he was talked into it.
Brooke: Taylor, please.
Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge, where'd you run off to?
Ridge: I paid Liam a visit.
Brooke: You, too?
Taylor: We must have just missed each other.
Ridge: He filed for an annulment.
Taylor: I know. I got there when he was signing the papers.
Taylor: I tried to talk sense into him.
Ridge: Yeah, so did I. Did you get the same impression that I did?
Taylor: That he's still in love with Steffy? Yes.
Brooke: Look, I know this is difficult for both of you, because she's your daughter, but serving annulment papers is a very clear statement.
Ridge: Logan... (Sighs) I know you don't want to hear this, but what is actually very clear is that Liam’s still in love with his wife.
Hope: It's over between you and Liam, Steffy. Lam has made it very clear what he wants.
Steffy: So I sign these papers, and it's like my marriage never happened?
Hope: Look, this is the best way to deal with this for everyone.
Steffy: Certainly the quickest.
Hope: Why do you want to drag it out? We all have to move on. Look, Steffy, I know that this isn't easy for you. I know that you still love him. And it--it's going to take time. But I hope that you realize that Liam and I were meant to be together. And I know that you think that you have a chance with him somewhere down the road, but I-I wouldn't hold on to that, because as soon as you sign those papers, Liam and I are getting married.
Steffy: Okay. (Sighs) I'll respect whatever he wants to do once our marriage is over.
Hope: Thank you. And for what it's worth, I really admire how well you're taking this.
Rick: You understand why I'm concerned?
Liam: Yeah, hey, look, I know, you're her brother. I mean, you're-- you're looking out for her.
Rick: She's been through enough, you know.
Liam: Nobody wants anybody to get hurt. Look, I never stopped loving Hope, even when we were apart. I mean, we deserve another chance at having a life together. And Hope's been so patient, you know, and I don't want her to have to wait any longer. That's why I filed for annulment. As--as soon as Steffy signs the papers, our marriage is over, and... Hope and I can finally be together.
Rick: Annulment. Wow, that's a-- that's a big step.
Rick: These annulments, they, uh, they go through pretty fast, right?
Liam: Yeah. Yeah, it was Hope's idea. She wants to get married as soon as possible.
Rick: You're not just doing this because she's asking you to?
Liam: No. No. Actually, if anything, I'm doing it for Steffy, as well. I mean I want this to end as quickly and painlessly as possible for her and be as sensitive as I can to her.
Liam: Listen, Rick, thank you for coming by. I mean, I know that you've had your issues with me in the past, and I'm hoping maybe we can try to get along.
Rick: As long as you're good to my sister, we're all right.
Liam: All right. (Sighs)
Brooke: I'm sorry for what Steffy’s going through, but we need to respect Liam’s decision.
Ridge: I think it'd be easier to accept if I knew he wasn't having doubts. That doesn't seem to be the case.
Taylor: Right. Wha... (Scoffs) Why is he forcing this issue so suddenly and so quickly?
Taylor: Really, this is not a high school romance. This is a marriage. Vows and commitment and promises, they--they've been made. I mean, now he just wants to completely invalidate it?
Ridge: It is pretty disrespectful.
Brooke: One of the requirements for an annulment is fraud. And we all know that in Liam and Steffy’s marriage, there's been a lot of deception.
Taylor: Oh, oh, would you stop it, please? Steffy has made some mistakes, but she's owned up to them. I don't know whatever the problem was they were having when they were in Cabo, but they--they seemed to work it out, or at least I thought they had. I don't know what's going on.
Ridge: Obviously, there's more going on than we knew about.
Brooke: Or his feelings for Hope were stronger than we all realized. I hope you'll both encourage Steffy to move on.
Taylor: Steffy has her own mind. (Scoffs) She loves Liam enough to respect what it is he wants. But don't stand there and expect me to encourage my daughter to give up on the man she loves. You wouldn’t.
Steffy: Wow, did things go to hell when I was gone.
Madison: We missed you.
Steffy: Clearly. No, no, thi--this is all wrong. Who was covering my job when I was laid up in bed? An 8 year old?
Madison: (Chuckles) Your brother.
Madison: I'll go yell at Thomas for you. Welcome back.
Steffy: I'm not signing it.
Rick: Liam said he and Hope plan to get married as soon as possible.
Taylor: (Laughs) Really? Oh, I guess you forgot that part.
Brooke: I didn't have a chance.
Ridge: I respect you for going over there in defense of your sister, but you can't honestly think this would be the best thing for Hope.
Rick: He's not gonna hurt her again, Ridge.
Taylor: Oh, but its okay if Steffy gets hurt? You don’t think she's lost enough?
Brooke: Hi, Sweetheart. (Sighs)
Hope: You guys know about the annulment, don't you?
Ridge: Yes. Liam told us.
Taylor: We're not pleased. This completely invalidates their marriage.
Rick: It's just a technicality, right? Besides, it's faster than divorce.
Hope: Yeah, Liam and I want to get married as soon as possible.
Taylor: Is that why you put him up to it?
Rick: You're missing the point. Liam wants to end this farce of a marriage as quickly and amicably as possible, for Steffy’s sake.
Steffy: You couldn't have warned me?
Liam: I should have. I'm sorry. You're still wearing the ring.
Steffy: Yeah. I feel like there's no reason to take it off. I have yours. It's in a safe spot, 'cause I know you're gonna be wearing it again.
Steffy: Do you know what it's meant to me, Liam, to be your wife? I have been so proud. And now you just want to end our marriage like it didn't even happen.
Liam: I am trying not to drag this out and hurt you even more.
Steffy: Hope used the same words. It was her idea, wasn't it?
Steffy: You know, when I think of an annulment, I think of regret. I think of shame. I am not ashamed of our marriage. I definitely do not regret it. And neither do you.
Liam: I know, you're right. I don’t.
Steffy: We loved each other, Liam. We got married. We exchanged beautiful vows. We committed our lives on top of that mountain. That has to mean something. (Sighs) Our marriage is ingrained in each of us. There's an "S" stamped on your heart, and you don't even know it.
Liam: Did you do that while I was sleeping? (Chuckles)
Steffy: (Chuckles) I'm gonna miss that.
Steffy: (Laughs) Sleeping next to you.
Liam: Steffy, do you think-- do you think this is easy for me? I mean, I still love you.
Steffy: I know you still love me. That's what makes this hard. You know, we-- you want a chance with Hope. You want to see what life is like with her. (Sighs) Well, fine. Fine. I am letting you go... for now. But don't ask me to pretend that I was never your wife. I can't erase something that means so much to me.
Hope: Look, I'm really sorry that Steffy is hurting, but I'm not going to apologize for being happy.
Ridge: And I don't want you to, Sweetheart. We're not taking sides here. We're just concerned for everybody's welfare. I think you might be rushing things.
Hope: This is right, Ridge. I-I have never been so sure of anything in my life.
Taylor: But, Hope, Steffy’s marriage is just ending. You... (Scoffs) You know, you need to give everybody a little time to heal, especially Liam.
Rick: Liam doesn't want more time. He made up his mind.
Taylor: Well, what if he changes his mind? What if he decides to go back to Steffy?
Hope: He won’t.
Taylor: What if he does though?
Hope: (Clears throat)
Taylor: For your own sake, you need to think about this...
Taylor: And out of respect, just wait a few months.
Brooke: What's done is done. There's no reason for them not to move forward.
Hope: Exactly. And--and that's-- that's what we're doing. And I want the whole world to know about it. I have scheduled a press conference and I am going to make the big announcement that Liam and I are back together...
Hope: And that we are getting married tomorrow.
Brooke: (Gasps) Oh, Honey.
Taylor: (Chuckles) Wait, how can that be? The--the annulment hasn't even taken place yet.
Hope: Well, all Steffy needs to do is sign the papers, and--and then Liam and I are free to be together.
Rick: I can't believe my little sister's getting married.
Hope: I know. I know! Oh, my gosh.
Rick: (Laughs) Come here.
Hope: (Laughs) I cannot wait to be married. I-I-I kept Liam waiting before, but I am not going to make that mistake again. As of tomorrow, I will be Mrs. Spencer. (Laughs)
Brooke: Oh, my gosh! We have so much to plan. How are we--
Hope: I know, I know.
Brooke: What are we gonna do?
Ridge: Our little girl is going to be devastated. (Laughter)
Taylor: Well, they're assuming that Steffy will sign those annulment papers.
Ridge: Why wouldn't she?
Liam: What do you want me to do?
Steffy: I think you already know the answer to that question. Are you really that much in a hurry to be with Hope?
Liam: Are you really trying to drag this out?
Steffy: I am trying to take some time in this critical moment to figure out who we are, what we want...
Steffy: Not rush in and out of a lifetime commitment. Yes, okay, we made a hasty decision when we entered into marriage. But, Liam, you are making a hasty decision right now.
Liam: Okay. All right.
Steffy: Okay, you feel like your life with Hope... (Sighs) Was interrupted. I get that. You feel this--this pull, this obligation to see what could have been. Fine. Finish what you started. But you'll realize Hope was and still is very immature. Liam, come--come on. Just look at me. Yes, you married a woman with flaws and insecurities. But with that came passion and desire, fun, and laughs. You wanted to devour life. You were miserable before. Go back to Hope. Go. Pull out her chair. Tell her that she's beautiful. You will get bored with her. I know it. And when you do, you can come back to me, a woman who truly loves you and knows how to push your buttons. You know I do.
Steffy: You know that. (Laughs)
Steffy: Yeah. Look, I think you just really need to be honest with yourself and ask yourself, what do you really want? Only you can make that decision. Remember all of our fun times? Yeah, it was a roller-coaster ride, wasn't it.
Steffy: (Chuckles) But that's what makes life interesting. (Sighs) Look, no matter what you do, I'm never gonna stop believing in us. This isn't the end. Far from it. Before this divorce is final, you'll come back to me.
